What customers say
As a gym owner, offering Nell to my team and my customers allows them to hyper personalise
their training programmes and learn more about how to optimise their diet and fitness regime.
Evgenia Koroleva, CEO ONELDN
Nell's service was really easy to follow and the results provided were clearer than most
I've received from other services in the same field. The actionable advice is really
helpful and I definitely feel more confident in making the right choices to manage my
health through my lifestyle. The dashboard was easy to use on both desktop and mobile -
making it easy for me to reference my results whenever I need to.
Melissa Serter, Senior Director at Vice
I have already cut back on cheese and fatty foods after learning I don’t taste or process fats well. It’s
so interesting to gain perspective about why to make changes, not just reading about random tips all the
time. I’m going to do the blood test as well, I want to compare the results.
James Threlfall, Professional Skater and Presenter
Really fast process from beginning to end. The results I received were of great value and practical
changes I can make to my lifestyle. Also helped me understand why I react certain ways with particular
foods. Great value!
I found out from my Nell report that because of my ACE gene I should be doing more HIIT workouts.
After trying this out for more than two months I have felt way better physically and mentally which is giving more energy at work.
I’ve found the right fit for me.
Arun, Founders Factory
Nell is the only genetic testing service that gives you a truly personal treatment.
Their results are clear and concise. The icing on the cake is a 20-minute consultation with their head geneticist,
who walks you through the most important parts of your report. Highly recommend.
